Abstract

An archaeological evaluation at Bridge Lane, Wimblington has revealed a late Iron Age ditch and traces of the medieval hamlet of Eastwood End. The ditch is an outlying remnant of a previously known Iron Age/Romano-British settlement, situated 100m to the south of the development site. The development site is situated at the southern headland of a medieval field. The earliest medieval features on the site represent structures (possibly buildings) that were erected during the 14th-15th century. This activity was probably succeeded by a period of cultivation. Rubbish filled ditches, dated by pottery to the 16th and 17th centuries, indicate the proximity of dwellings at this date.
